I have about two dozen at any one time. Still there's only a few I use often. A shires bass for the orchestra, another shires for most practicing at home, a Conn 62HG for commercial work, a Yamaha single trigger bass for teaching, Shires MD+ for small tenor, Bach 42 for large tenor, Boosey E flat 3+1 bass for most tuba doubling, a Bach 36 just because. Alto bone, Yamaha euphonium, conn bass trumpet and the rest are there just to remind me I don't need another horn!

About 15.  Mostly high-end, and mostly listed here on the forum.  Yikes.
Plus a couple cornets, trumpet, saxophone, clarinet, flute, blah blah blah.
A couple of tubas...you get the idea.

If all goes well, two. One all-purpose "symphonic-type" horn and one all-purpose "jazz-type" horn. Since I do not make my living honking, why would I need any more than that? I don't. Nor do I want any more than that. If I should find one or the other I like better than what I have, I'll sell the one it replaces.

Soon, I will be doing to my mouthpiece collection what I have been and am doing to my trombone collection.

This is a pretty darn good discussion Forum (as they go). But as far as actual playing advice is concerned, don't let it take the place of an instructor you can relate to one-on-one.

Two at the moment, and maybe three in the future.

Yamaha YBL-830 Bass
Yamaha YSL-882UII Tenorbass
Another Yamaha tenorbass, or any reputable tenorbass will do, if I can find another good deal on Yahoo Auction Japan.

I plan to donate (or sell) the two tenorbasses to my former school band when I permanently go back to my home country, since they heavily suffer from lack of good equipment. I may talk to the band director to retain some authority on the horn, though, in case of donation.

Nice synths! Jealous of the Waldorfs. May I ask why you have 2 Jupiter 80s? One for the road and one for the studio?

That was actually the intended purpose, to have one in the studio and one for the road.  I came across an amazing deal for the second one I could not pass up given the phenomenal build quality and key action, plus it sounds great!

Trombones:
A standard Bb tenor
A Superbone
Tenor PBone
Alto PBone (Unlike the tenor, this one plays right!)

Other Brass:
Eupho
Tenor horn
Bb trumpet
pocket trumpet
cornet
two flugels
One cornetto in G

(would love to get serpent, ophicleide, keyed bugle, keyed trumpet, Renaissance and Baroque and Classical slide trumpets, contrabass, cimbasso and sackbut, but que sera sera ... )

- woodwind and strings and percussion? well, yes, one likes to think of oneself as a gentleman, a man of taste and refinement and an ability to aggravate the neighbours beyond reason, but that's no reason to do the same for my friends online, is it?  :D

I don't have any horns.  Evil I only have one bass trombone, a Chinese stencil job that seems to play fine.

I currently only have one horn, my Getzen 1062FD which I have for about 2 years, that might change in the future though.  My student Besson will be donated to someone in like elementary or beginning band in junior high, I don't plan on using it in the future.  Now that my school's wind ensemble is doing more demanding pieces in the low register, I'm now using my bass trombone.  The winter concert was on a 88H I used to play the 3rd part which one never need a f attachment, and one where only C and B in the staff was used.  So I pretty much now have only one horn now.

For a non-professional player one trombone can be plenty.  I know a guy who played in high level ensembles with only one horn: a Holton TR-185 single trigger bass.  Since he mostly played lower parts it was perfect.

I have only been able to part from three horns and they were sold because I needed money. The first one was a King 3b/F that was a gift from my grandfather. I needed money to buy my Abilene Conn 88h in the year 1979 when I prepared my self for music college. I miss that first 3b now for sentimental reasons since he is now long gone. I do have kept his Swedish made Ahlberg Olsson valve trombone from 1901. He also started as a musician before he switched career.

I also sold one 3b and one Conn 8H when I was unemployed and needed money a short period in 2003.

I don't know how many horns there are here, but it is three less than it could be and there is always room for one more.

3 trombones, 1.5 trumpets, 2 cornetti, 2 mute cornetti.

I started with one bone, as one does. Bach Stradivarius tenor.
In my late 20s, one of my best friends (who also played) asked me to hold onto his Bach trigger bass because he was moving to a tiny appartment in LA and couldnít take it with him. Heís now a fairly successful actor on multiple major network shows, and recently signed on to a major motion picture. I donít think heíll be asking for it back anytime soon, but Iím prepared to return it at any time. Meanwhile, it earns me money and I give it T.L.C.
About three years ago, I joined a street band and needed a low-cost, reliable horn which could handle a wide range yet not break my heart if it were to receive ďcharacter marksĒ from being, well, on the street. I watched eBay and won a Bach Strad tenor for a whopping $87, including shipping. Yes, it plays extremely well and sounds fantastic. Say what you may, itís a great reliable horn and ya canít beat the price. If it gets dinged or stolen, Iím not concerned.
Cornetti? Yes, as in the plural of Renaissance cornetto. I play in a group called Lauda Musicam Atlanta on two resin Christopher Monk cornetto horns. This past season, I acquired two wooden ďmute cornettoĒ horns from a teacher at Juliard. While I have not yet used them in a concert, they are gorgeous (sound and looks).

Thatís my little story. For now. I enjoy all the photos and history posted here. I work and pay my bills with these simple instruments. Maybe someday Iíll buy a Shire or some other fancy horn, but I doubt it. I like simple. And I like my sound.
